Are injections now actually making veins worse/ more noticeable later?

In brief: No
Many mistakenly believe this but it is actually exactly the opposite of what really happens.
It is safe to say that treating your veins now will help to prevent you from developing as much new vein trouble as you would have done otherwise without treatment. Unfortunately, though, nothing can guarantee that no new veins will ever show up in your lifetime even after effective treatment.

In brief: See Vein Specialist
Sclerotherapy should not make veins worse.
If this is occurring then you should see a vein specialist for a full venous evaluation including a venous ultrasound to look for underlying saphenous vein reflux (malfunctioning valves). This could be the reason that you are not responding to treatment. Also the results of sclerotherapy are directly related to the experience of the treating physician.
